Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM} is a method of data transmission using small fixed-length cells. This thesis presents a model of an ATM LAN which provides a realistic representation of data transmission over the system by explicitly modeling both the ATM network and the applications running over that network. Coloured timed Petri nets are used to create a compact model that is capable of representing a variety of different protocols at a high level of detail. The model is designed to allow easy reconfiguration or addition of detail at different levels of the system. Simulation is used to evaluate the performance of the model, and results are compared to actual data gathered from the Memorial University campus network.
